Why Bernie Sanders thinks he can win California this time

March 12, 2019

Excerpt:

Sen. Bernie Sanders isn’t conceding California in the Democratic presidential primary race to home state Sen. Kamala Harris. Far from it. Top Sanders campaign officials say he’s planning to have field offices and run commercials across the nation’s most populous state.

“We’re going to have a robust campaign in California.” said Ben Tulchin, Sanders’ San Francisco-based pollster, adding that “Bernie is extremely well-positioned” in California. “It will be a well-funded media and field campaign.”

Roughly half his support comes from Latinos and African Americans, some surveys suggest. Sanders’ favorability rating among Latino voters is 59 percent, according to a recent poll — higher than the rest of the announced field.

That has Sanders’ campaign predicting he will do well in the early states with large numbers of Latinos, including California and Nevada. If Sanders can corral Millennial and independent voters as he did in 2016, “we think that’s a winning coalition in California and beyond,” Tulchin said.

1. An Important Preview Of His 50-State Strategy

It's quite fitting. Fellow Green Mountaineer, Gov. Howard Dean, invented the modern 50-State Strategy. It propelled Barack Obama into the White House but has lain fallow ever since. Bernie's move to reenergize it not only is a preview of his general election strategy but also how the DNC will run with him in the White House.
